Cheep beer and very strong. It’s not complex, it only good to get drunk I guess.

Beerhunter111 (18062) - P´Castle, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2016
50cl bottle. Pours clear deep golden colour with a huge most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of strong grainy malt, soft sweetness. Taste of strong medium sweet malt, medium grains, not really good!

CAN 50 CL. Clear deep golden, small white head. You can tell what it is by the aroma - simple sugar sweetness and sharp boozy notes. The taste confirms - an early sweetness is soon replaced by a strong harsh bitterness with a good deal of alcohols in it. Surprisingly bitter. And crappy.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2016 Butelka 0,5 z datą ważności do 03.05.2016 temperatura degustacji 12-14 stopni +, szkło teku. Aromat: przypalone ciemne pieczywo z nutami karmelowo-miodowymi w połączeniu z delikatnym alkiem przypomina trochę jakiś tani likier, ponadto wada w postaci żelaza (próba skóry potwierdza). Piana: beżowa, obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, średnio trwała, zdobi szkło. Barwa: bardzo ładny ciemny bursztyn wpadający w rubin, idealnie klarowne. Smak: podobnie jak w aromacie słodko karmelowo-miodową, trochę melanoidowe, zbalansowane jak to w takich piwach bywa za niską goryczką którą trochę potęguje wysokie wysycenie. Trochę degustacja na siłę (jak już piję to coś napiszę) , ale pomyślałem że z drugiej strony dobrze jest wypić raz na ...dziesiat piw kraftowych takiego mózgo trzepa ponieważ utwierdza mnie to w tym że kraft to jest to i cieszę się że poszedłem tą drogą (takie przemyślenia), jak to można pić ;) .

nephirem (328) - CROATIA - JUL 25, 2016
Pours clear golden color with bubbly looking white head. Smell is mostly yeast, slightly sweet from malts. Thin body, medium carbonation, watery to oily texture. Kicks off sweet on the tongue but soon after it transforms to bitter. Aroma is very artificial, metallic, a bit grainy. Lingering unpleasant mouthfeel. Slightly boozy. Overall, quite poor, plain and generic.

Arek (1021) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Can 0.5 l (new black design as Argus Strong), Lidl, Wrocław, Poland
Bursztynowe piwo o gęstej i puszystej pianie oraz słodowym zapachu. W smaku pełne i słodowe z łagodną, lekko metaliczną alkoholową goryczką na finiszu.

hrabren (1056) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 10, 2016
0.5 l can bought at a local Lidl store. Shared with Igor. Clear yellow, diminishing white head. Faint caramel and hay aroma. Metallic caramel sweetness. Very shallow, light, no body, soft carbonation. Can’t feel the alcohol presence. Terrible. Sorry Igor.
